Village Farm and Town Foot Farm Holiday Cottages, Northumberland
We had a fantastic time. Beautiful gardens, children felt welcome and free! Lodge was spacious,homely and very warm! Lewis family, Coquet Lodge
We just wanted to email and say thank you so much for letting us stay on in Townfoot Cottage till today. As Gary had been incredibly busy at work and only arrived late on the Friday the extra day allowed us all a full week together which was sorely needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our third visit to the area especially in the glorious Northumbrian sunshine! Although you probably hear it all the time (at least we hope you do) you and Anthony do an excellent job in providing very comfortable accommodation with the added benefit of all the great extra facilities of the health club, spa, play areas and games room. We tend to go a few cottage holidays a year and struggle to find anything as well thought out and run as Village Farm. We will definitely be back again! Thanks again.
We had a superb week (again) staying in Coquet, it now feels very much like a home away from homes. As always the children loved all the facilities and Steve and I enjoy the comforts of the cottage. We still enjoy finding new places to visit, but without fail the beauty of the beaches is a firm favourite.
We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful house ( Viewfield). We have loved the spaciousness, the warmth, the views and family meals around thie table. Thank you for your attention to detail and for your quick response to any problems. The young ones have made good use of the Health Club, while the oldies have enjoyed the comfy sofas and some good books. We do hope to return to this lovely spot.... Many thanks for your kind welcome.

We had a very good weekend thanks, the cottage was excellent and very well equipped for our party. We have stayed in the area before quite a few times, but my family hadn't and they liked it very much too. The spa and pool were used by us quite a lot also the play areas, indoor and outdoor. The whole package was very good and a credit to yourselves and your staff , we hope that we'll be able to return sometime in the near future.
Came in 1988 and 1989 when the Farmhouse was Churchside and Stableside and the gym etc were the stables. Daughters, now 26 and 27, still talk about it and it has not lost its magic. We will be back!

Despite the rain, we did enjoy our Northumbrian holiday and found Melrose Cottage very cosy and comfortable. We had good beach walks, a day in Hadrian's Wall Country,walks at Simonside and Coquetdale and we loved Alnwick Garden.
Just to say a big thank you for a fantastic stay. Your hospitality and the facitities were second to none.
We have really relaxed and the children loved the pool. We are already talking about coming back.
We stayed last week in the Farmhouse. I just want to say thank you for the superb accommodation. It was exactly as it said on your website. It was clean comfortable and had a lovely homely feel. The spa facilities were far above our expectations and thoroughly enjoyable. I would definitely recommend your website and we hope to all come again next year, funds permitting.

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our wee visit to Village Farm Cottages we had a fabulous time at the weekend, even with the pouring rain. Sallys flat is so cosy and comfortable and your leisure facilities are second to none. I also especially appreciated the wee touches like the sweets, wine and lemon drizzle cake which we really enjoyed! I have been telling all my friends about your cottages. Thanks for being so hospitable.
My sisters and I spent a great weekend in Kielder Chalet. We were very impressed with the chalet and the welcome gifts. We all really enjoyed the Health Club and spa and the great facilities it offered. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This was my first visit but I'll be back sometime to use your facilities and I'll certainly be recommending the chalets and spa.
Would just like to thank you for the lovely weekend we had staying at Viewfield. The whole weekend was perfect we arrived in the dark to see the Christmas tree lights shining and the place warm and snug . The standard of accommodation was very impressive as were all the accessories ,you thought of everything ! However a hot tub would be good too. We will definitely be coming back and I hope to come back in the summer with my family.
We have had another wonderful stay at Viewfield and would like to book again for next year. The weather was not as bad as expected and the views across the fields were beautiful.
Overall a lovely holiday in a lovely location and we were very pleased with the condition of the cottage.
Really lovely cottage! Very comfortable, wonderfully quiet and close to many attractions. Flowers and wine on arrival and cake! much appreciated. Thank you.
Chevallier family, Wool Cottage
It was simply superb!
Have enjoyed this holiday in the summer and think it would be a great place to return at any time of year. Have noted how comfortable and well equipped the cottages are and the log fires!! It would make a lovely winter holiday too.
Ideas to improve your holiday? Crystal chandeliers? Servants giving you breakfast in bed? Hard to know how to improve on htis excellence!
Especially appreciated the staffed gym with knowledgeable staff.
The welcome pack (cake, wine) the real flowers and the little extras like the soaps all raise this above the average. Thank you for a wonderful holiday spot! PS Very friendly neighbours too!
Stewart family, Wool Cottage
Just a quick thank you for the usual Village Farm hospitality over the last week. It was SO lovely to be back in Northumberland and to have the comfort of Wool Cottage as a base. It made us realise that 4 years is far too long to be away. We love what you have done with the cottage - the new kitchen and bathroom have added more luxury without losing character. We were also very impressed with the pool complex - the sauna and jacuzzi being a great way to wind down. You must continue to be very proud of what you have and we hope that you continue the good work for many years - we want to be able to spend much more time there when we eventually retire! I suspect that we will not be with you next year due to many commitments on both money and time but hopefully 2012 will bring us back - perhaps experimenting with a different time of year.
Howell family, August 2010
We loved this holiday. We wanted to do self catering without having to go ona big holiday park - the cottage has been fantastic and pool ideal. It's so Perfect! Our baby enjoyed it too.
Hunter family, June 2010
Thank you for a lovely stay. The hard work you put in to make us comfortable is much appreciated.
G & KT, June 2010
Thank you for such a fantastic holiday. The Flat was beautiful and in a great location. The spa was amazing and was what we needed to feel relaxed. Also the chocolate cake was delicious and a great added touch.
Wayne and Jen, May 2010
We have just returned to Paris, and I wanted to say thank you for the quality of your facilities and your house. Everything was very user-friendly and relaxing, and the 'un-policed' freedom you allow your visitors - including our teenagers- was very welcome, precious even.
Williams family, April 2010
We have had a lovely week in Pantiles Cottage. The accommodation is fantastic and all the on-site facilities are second-to-none...Many thanks for the wine and flowers on arrival.They are a nice touch. We are looking forward to seeing you again at the end of the year.
PS The local farm food delivery service which you mention on your website is excellent. All the groceries we ordered were first class. We will definitely use it again.
Davies family, April 2010
Liked the website - very easy to use and informative. Directions very accurate and easy to follow. Wine, sweets and flowers a lovely touch. Thank you. The cottage was wonderful and just right for us. Thank you for providing a perfect base for our holiday.
The Hill Family
We have just had the absolute pleasure of staying in your Coquet Lodge last weekend and felt that I had to write and say thank you so very much for a most wonderful weekend.
It was always going to be a lovely break as we had no husbands or children to worry about or take care of, but we could not possibly have anticipated just how fabulous it was going to be. We are always a little wary when booking on-line as to whether the pictures of the properties are true, but we were not disappointed.
We arrived about 6.15 on the Friday and to be honest we didn't want to leave. What a beautiful lodge it was, very comfortable and homely! As soon as we returned home on the Sunday evening, we were all looking to see when we could bring our families!
Diane Dennison and friends
Just a quick message to say thank you for last weeks holiday at Melrose. Once again we had a fantastic time and had a struggle to get the kids to come home. They are already asking when we are returning, and when we do come back we look forward to seeing the new pool area. The best thing for us as a family is the value for money with the lovely cottage and all the facilities.
Kirkaldie family, Lincolnshire
Just wanted to say a huge thank you after our recent stay at Coquet Lodge. The accommodation and all facilities were excellent, we truly had a magnificent time on our first family holiday. I have already been looking to see when we can come again!
Ashton family, North Yorkshire
We can't think of anything to improve our holiday. After a hectic and difficult year we were looking forward to a calm,relaxed holiday, which is what you provided. All the facilities were there if we needed them, but you also gave us the space to get on with it. Many thanks, we will be back, as will family and friends if we can persuade them!
Mr and Mrs Jinks
Thank you very much for the stay at Viewfield. We have had an excellent holiday, despite the weather! We have found the house to be an excellent size and layout for two families and, in particular, very child-friendly for our troop! The location has been ideal - so close to Alnwick for our trips to Morrison's and so easy to return to for a walk or sit in the garden. What a beautiful view we've enjoyed from the garden and from the beautifully dedorated and comfortable lounge. Thanks again for providing such a peaceful property.
The Matthews party
Felt that we had to write and let you know what a fabulous time we all had. We have booked holidays and accommodation over the Internet before, but we have not been so surprised in such a positive way as we were when we walked into viewfield. A clean modern comfortable home from home with views to die for. The beautiful flowers and bottle of wine were the icing on the cake. The children and grandparents alike thought the place was fantastic. Many thanks again.
If we lived closer we would certainly return on a more frequent basis and for a longer period.
Mr and Mrs Deards
We loved the privacy the gardens gave to each property. A lovely holiday home and ideal for our break with daughter and grandchildren. Thank you.
Thank you so much for all the many facilities you provided to make our holiday so enjoyable. We all had such a great time from the 10 month old to the 70 year old! The accommodation was so good, I felt I was visiting the home of a friend. All your thought, planning and hard work was much appreciated.
Having just arrived home safely after a wonderful week staying in Murayfield, we wanted to express our thanks to you for the excellent welcome we received and for the well equipped cottage. We filled in the satisfaction survey, but that does not show how much we appreciated the ease of booking online and the welcoming emails and your visits to the cottage door. Thanks also for the cake, sweets and especially the bottle of wine, which went down very well.
We have stayed in holiday cottages every year for the last 13 years, in very different parts of the country and feel that Murrayfield was easily the best so far with regard to kitchen equipment and electronic entertainment.
Many thanks again
